Shazam!: Batman Easter Egg Found in Set Photos

With an extensive world in the comics, there's no doubt that DCEU films will be having some references here and there. Some new photos from the set of Shazam! actually hint at a classic brand from Gotham, and also give us a clue as to what Billy Batson will be doing with his powers.

Check out these posters from the set:

If you look closely at one of the posters, it actually has ACE Chemicals as one of the advertisers for a match. Comic fans will immediately recognize ACE as the same factory where the Joker fell into the pool of chemicals that turned him into what he is. The same factory also made an appearance in Suicide Squad.

As for the boxing posters, I can't help but imagine that Billy Batson will be pulling a Peter Parker and will try out his powers in a local boxing ring. It's either that, or he'll want to do some training with his superhero self before he goes out to fight crime. These are all just guesses, so don't be surprised if they don't actually happen in the film.


Shazam! looks to be smoothly going through production, and everyone can't wait to have their first look at the film—hopefully sometime later this year.

Shazam! comes out April 5, 2019.
